Fracture (mandibular / jaw) 0003
2D coronal CT slice through the head of a Blainville's Beaked Whale (Mesoplodon densirostris) (A) and the corresponding 3D Volume Rendering Technique (VRT) reconstruction (B) from CT scans showing multiple bilateral longitudinal and comminuted mandibular fractures (arrows). Necropsy of the beaked whale confirmed the fractures. Adjacent contusions on the ventral surface are consistent with the underlying fractures (related report).
